[PATCH][RESEND] Added support for AVerMedia Cardbus Hybrid remote control

Hi all,

I've found a way to get the remote control for AVerMedia Cardbus Hybrid (and 
possibly other Cardbus cards like Cardbus Plus) work, so here is the patch 
for it. Currently only the Hybrid (E506R) uses it.

Patch was created against v4l-dvb Mercurial tree (22.1.2009), tested with 
vanilla 2.6.28.1. Works for me.

The first mail (22.1.2009 on Linux-DVB ML) didn't get any attention, so here 
is a "resend" version, now on unified Linux-media ML.

Enjoy (and please apply :-)). Comments are more than welcome.

Regards,
Oldrich.

Please take a look at the message logs (dmesg).

Yes, it looks pretty wrong, however the linux-i2c list isn't the right
place to discuss this.

LinuxTv issue with Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-TD-Stick - very near (but not quite ) working]

Hi,

I have been following the good instructions for getting the above work
with my fedora 9 64bit machine from :

        http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-NOVA-TD-Stick#Firmware

It is very nearly working, and I seem to have a bug which is manifesting
itself in 2 ways.

1. If I try :
        scandvb /usr/share/doc/dvb-apps-1.1.1/channels.conf-dvbt-sandy_heath

I get the following ERROR which I can not locate on the web:

        scanning /usr/share/doc/dvb-apps-1.1.1/channels.conf-dvbt-sandy_heath
        using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and
        '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
        ERROR: cannot
        parse'BBC-Choice:641833334:INVERSION_OFF:BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:FEC_2_3:FEC_NONE:QAM_64:TRANSMISSION_MODE_2K:GUARD_INTERVAL_1_32:HIERARCHY_NONE:620:621
        '
2. When I enter kaffeine, I can scan the dvb device and all of the
channels appear in the menu. But I can not get any to display (audio or
video) , when selected.

If I run Kaffeine from the command line, I get:

        kaffeine
        /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 : opened ( DiBcom 7000PC )
        /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 : opened ( DiBcom 7000PC )

Did it happen? I've just tested kernel 2.6.29-rc3-git3 and the problem
is still present.

The last address looks like a typo.
